Default Re: Marcel Cedan

I saw Marcel Cerdan in his first fight in America against the tough Georgie Abrams at MSG. The year was 1946 and Cerdan won a tough decision over Georgie Abrams, who was
good enough to draw with Charley Burley....Cerdan was 30 years old in 1946, was on the downside after spending his prime years as a WW in Europe during WW2...A very strong
heavy handed swarmer Marcel was, who would certainly have been a MW champ today ...
